Jackson Browne: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 11 October 1986

Sunshine, bleeding hearts, airbrushed emotions, existentialist romances lost in the night and mid-decade political crises of consciences – the boy with the Sunsilk middle parting and fresh-faced appeal etches the lifestyle better than most.
